Area of Practice

Lawyers may find significant differences between the security and service features offered in cloud-based products developed specifically for the legal community and those developed for the general public. These differences in features may be evident in the service level agreements (SLAs) provided by non-legal industry vendors, who may not understand the importance of confidentiality and security in the context of a law practice.

Accordingly, throughout this article we point to those products designed specifically for legal professionals, which have made a more concerted effort to ensure that their policies and SLAs address the practical and ethical concerns of a law practice. Of course, you should conduct your own due diligence before engaging with any of these services, to satisfy that your own security and confidentiality issues are appropriately addressed.

What is an accessory after the fact?A common charge in criminal procedure television shows, like “Law and Order,” is accessory after the fact. In short, an accessory after the fact is someone who, knowing that a felon has already committed a crime, helps the felon avoid arrest or trial. For example, if your friend knocked off a 7/11 and you hid him in the basement to help him avoid the police, you’d be an accessory after the fact. To be guilty as an accessory after the fact, however, the criminal actor must have committed a felony; you cannot be an accessory after the fact to a misdemeanor offense.
